A lovely sunny afternoon on Tuesday 15th April and smiles all round on the aft deck of S/Y Aglaia as the crew hand over a cheque representing the funds raised at their recent dock party – a whopping 12,258€!! Included in this total 713€ from Bar Mojo in La Lonja, Palma who hosted the after party. Plus a great donation from MTN for 2000€ and 1000€ from Klaus Allebrodt from A2B project management.
These funds, actually a heavy bag of cash, and a mountain of donated kids clothing, toys, food and books will all go to helping the charity ‘Mediterranea’ provide vital support to families who live in abject poverty in this paradise isle.
Continued effort is needed, yachts can donate unwanted items such as clothing and linens as well as popping a little extra in their provisioning run for example milk, dry and canned foods and baby food and supplies are in high demand. We all live so well, let’s help others to live a little better!
